OEMs and Enterprise will face several challenges to develop and deploy their IoT solutions. Once they will have converged on the business reason, and use case, by answering the following questions: Why would I connect my device in the first place? Why this device should stay connected? They will then have do go do it.

In this journey, there 6 problems to solve, whether the device is a healthcare device, a home thermostat or anything else.

2. Connect
3. Manage (data, device, and user)
4. Make it serviceable (mobile and/or web-service development, deployment)
5. Integration (with IT and other enterprise systems)
